Hi. I'm not sure if this has been asked already, but I hope there is someone who can help me with some of the questions I have about studying medicine in Europe. I am a holder of NZ citizen. I was not successful in getting into med school in NZ, so I thought about applying to Aus unis. But on the news I heard that they will increase the tuition fees for NZ students studying in Australia and this has put me off from applying to Aus unis as it will be very difficult for me to afford to study there. My parents are talking about selling the house to pay for my tuition fees but I really don't want it to come down to that. While I was doing some research on internet, I found that there are some Medical schools in Europe (mostly in Eastern Europe) that provide courses in English. Although I assume the medical schools in eastern Europe is 'inferior' to the ones in Australia, I find the tuition fees and living cost very attractive. Personally, the prestige of universities don't really matter to me, as long as I can graduate and work as a doctor. However, I have zero information on what will happen once I graduate from one of these universities. One university in Poland claims that, in the final year, they will send you to US (university of California) for your placement and you can also do your internship and residency in US. I'm not sure if that's just for US citizens only. Anyway, my real concern is, after I graduate, will my medical degree be recognized in other countries? can I come back to NZ to work? or work in Australia/US/UK/other EU countries? or if none of this is possible, can I at least work in the country where I got my degree even though I'm not a citizen there?
